Visited the area Gun Library today (3/15) to check out a 12 Parker DHE-- All their guns have the trigger locks in place. After a look-see, I asked the GL manager to pls. remove the trigger locks, so I could check for: safety function, trigger pulls and ejector function. "Sorry, Sir, but Bass Pro Shops policy is: We can only do this after you have purchased the gun>"

Can you believe this- no one I know in their right mind would buy a gun in that price range w/o doing what I wanted to do. RWTF--

That's like a car dealer telling you that you can't get in a car, much less drive it around the block, before you buy it. You can look at it from the outside, but you can't "handle" it.

Absolutely ridiculous.

That is an unusual policy, and it will be interesting to hear if all Bass Pro Shops are adhering to the same rules.

I can almost understand it from the standpoint of having endless tire-kickers coming in and repeatedly dry firing and slamming guns closed, etc. Not everyone handles a gun with care, or knows what they are doing, and more so if they don't own it. I suppose if the gun really interested me and we arrived at an agreeable price, we could also agree that I had the right of refusal if it didn't meet any of the usual function tests. Under the circumstances, I might ask for that guarantee in writing. For a gun like a DHE that would likely sell for several thou at a retail store if in nice condition, I'd ask for a 3 Day FIRING Function return policy. All they could do is say no, and I could then take my money elsewhere.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

It is the policy at all of them. Take your money elsewhere.

Best,

Is Bass Pro headed down the drain like Dicks?

I'm no good at proof marks, Ted, but no problem picking up big-box political messages---as you do.

Can I check this gun out please...sure...can you remove the trigger lock please....sure...then the guy pulls a few shells out of his pocket....see where I'm going with this. the lawyers would love this scenario. The world has changed...get use to it. pretty much trying to avoid this scene from the Terminator.

Life is too short to have a 'hate on' for so many things or people. Isn't it?

Some guy went the Bass Pro in Olathe Kansas, loaded a gun from the display and killed himself. Hence the gun locks. There is currently a plan in the works to allow removal of the trigger locks so customers can function check weapons with the weapon's muzzle secured in a clearing barrel. The ~15 step process promises to be a giant pain the neck.

I was at the machine gun store in vegas waiting outside the firing range with my kids to shoot. An older guy walks up, opens his gun case, pulls out a glock and starts loading a clip in the crowded public area. my son told him he shouldn't do that. he got irritated, said he can do what he wants and continued to load a clip. I brought it to the attention of the staff, who all carry, and two of them stopped him and made him lock his gun up again until he was in the range booth. he got even more irritated, that he couldn't load his gun in public...lol
Nonetheless, we had a great time, and seen him shooting a few rows down. A fun place for sure. my daughter shot best out of all of us, and did particularly well with the 9 mill handgun.
